About The Report:
The federal government is facing an important test of its resolve on climate action: whether to approve or reject what would be Canada’s largest open-pit tar sands mine ever, Teck Resources’ Frontier Mine. If constructed, the mine would destroy critical habitat, threaten at-risk species, and infringe on Indigenous rights, all while pushing Canada further from reaching our climate targets, adding emissions equivalent to all the cars in BC every year.
If constructed, the Teck Frontier mega project would devastate wetlands, old-growth forests, and at-risk species that depend on these fragile ecosystems. The site is a mere 17km away from an Indigenous settlement and will damage the land, resources and culture of the surrounding communities.
Tell the federal government to choose the climate, environment, and Indigenous rights over another hugely destructive tar sands project.
